A New Year

"2010? Where did 2009 go? It seems to have gone so quickly that I am not sure how it could have past. It was an eventful year. I was busy with my little granddaughter who is now almost 3 years old. I got another dog, a little minature pincher. We adopted him from a rescue group in Ontario. My mom was diagnosed with the beginning stages of Alzheimers disease. My partner Bob, cut his finger very badly with his table saw and was off work for 2 months. My whole routine was turned upside down. Another friend of ours died. The number of dead just keep adding up. A boy we knew years ago ended his life in December. More friends of my daughter died. They are too young to be leaving this world now. Bob's niece has been ill since April and no one knows what is the matter with her. His brother has been diagnosed with a rare disease that only 1 in 100,000 people get. It just goes on and on. When will it end?" I whisper.

Are you listening?
